During the summer, the Old Aztecs players participate in San Diego Sevens, aka the TUNAs.
SD Tuna Sevens is a non club affiliated side. The hope is to put the best team of players from San Diego into tournaments and see if we can’t qualify for Nationals and develop homegrown talent. We aren’t flying any one in, this is purely to showcase the talent we have in SD. All club, college, and new athletes are welcome. We would love to have two sides. The aim is to learn the game, have fun playing together, and show Southern California what we are capable of.
Practices will be Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-8pm in Point Loma at Liberty Station.
This summer, we welcome Coach Bryan Barnard to the TUNA swarm. Bryan is an Old Aztec & diligent student of the game. Last year he was the head coach for Tribe 7’s.
TUNA founder and former coach Sean Lindersmith (pictured above left with Bryan) is currently in Minnesota, working to grow the game of rugby while overseeing Youth Rugby programs. He will also be coaching Coast Guard 7’s again this year.
